"It was his dream (to join Barca) and it is the truth when I say he left Liverpool for only one club and we really had to accept that. In the end, it was quite easy".

However, despite laying praise at the rest of the Fab Four, it was Mohamed Salah in particular who the former Arsenal man tipped to replace Barcelona-bound Coutinho, waxing lyrical about his clever running. Because I know we tried absolutely everything.

"But then coming here and feeling the spirit immediately, it was just, for me, a match in heaven".

"We knew it when the club tried everything". Do I think I can use him and can he help us?' He was not ready to do that any more.

Liverpool fans must be salivating at the prospect of Griezmann combining with the likes of Salah, Firmino, and Mane in the Premier League.

"You know I'm not a manager who goes to the owners and counts the money and says 'look, this is what we've got, this is what we've spent, now we need that'". He has things that we like. Some said he is an ideal replacement for aging midfield maestro Andres Iniesta, while others opine he could bring something unique and special to the Spanish side. But for me? It's business as usual. You always have to react. "It's all good", he added. And finally, to the most important people of Liverpool - the Liverpool supporters.

He also claims how Coutinho's transfer away from Liverpool is bad news for England's top flight.

Guardiola has been impressed with what he's seen at Anfield this season and feels in many ways his team and the German's are mirror images of one another. "What they do, what we are and what we have to do to beat them".

"We don't have to replace him", said Klopp. We'll have 11 players and we played fantastic football without Phil. He was five years here.

"We have open eyes through this transfer window but we will not make crazy things". Will it happen? Watch this space.

He reflected that Liverpool's game "worked with Phil really well, sometimes not" and that without him it worked "really well, sometimes not" but said they "don't have to think about that" now he has gone. It is a city that I like a lot.

He has chipped in with five goals and three assists in 17 league outings for his club this term. Stoke City were heading into the Sky Bet Championship under the Welshmans management, and the 2-1 FA Cup third round defeat by League Two side Coventry City proved the final straw. If nothing happens in this moment Mo is back. "He's shown he believes in me massively, even after performances I've not been happy with".

"He always plays within himself, which is a great sign".

But Klopp insisted that the No.10's attitude showed that was not possible. He needs time for proper training of course. To all the amazing club staff who have been part of my life in Liverpool - I will miss you.
